Much appreciated the fact that the background music was barely audible, and that it was relaxing music. Look forward to a more extensive menu.
While the restaurant is beautiful, it is pricey. When I asked about the chef's choice of seafood, I was told my choice was not spicey. It was. The sauce was quite full of heat. And the price was way too high for the piece of fish and rice I was given.
SO delicious ! Mediterranean bowl with salmon, sea bass and carrot cake were fabulous even though somewhat pricey.
Great food, had the Gyro, good , attentive service and pleasant waitress, a good experience, we will be back soon!
We stopped in Red Wing on a drive from the Twin Cities to Winona. This was a wonderful surprise! From the lavender martini (excellent) to the delicious food -- watermelon salad with couscous (slightly spicy and light), a mojo cubano (my husband said it was excellent), fig and prosciutto flatbread. We will return on future trips this way. Definitely recommend!
Thank you for stopping on your trip! All excellent choices. We appreciate your support and your recommendation. Come again soon,
Sea bass was flaky and delicious. Husbands Swedish meatballs were drier and appeared to be overdone - harder on the outside.
Hi Shelley - thank you for your feedback! We shared your comments with our culinary team to learn and grow. We're so happy you chose to dine with us. Well wishes and safe travels,
Wonderful service. We celebrated an anniversary and we had a free Mousse dessert! Delicious!
Hi Elizabeth - Dessert is always a must when celebrating a milestone. Thank you for your review and the compliments on the service. Cheers to many more!
Beautiful outdoor setting with tables nicely spaced. Food was good and service was attentive.
Good morning! Thank you for dining with us and sharing your kind words. All the best,
This was our first visit to the restaurant, but we will surely be back the next time we are in the area. The food was terrific, and the venue was a perfect place to enjoy a beautiful day. Prices are quite reasonable for the quality and volume of food as well.
Hi there - Thank you for dining with us! We're so happy you enjoyed your experience. Red Wing is the place to be during the summer. We can't wait to welcome you back. Happy dining,
Once again a fabulous meal. We went this past Sunday for brunch and had the crab cake benedict and eggs benedict. Both were awesome. I recommend hash browns over the breakfast potatoes. And if you like bloody mary's, their mix is wonderful. I had a virgin bloody mary and loved it. Service was very nice and atmosphere on the patio is perfect. Will be back.
Good morning Tammy - Thank you for dining with us again! Sounds like a great Sunday Funday. I recommend trying the Big Boot Breakfast. It's a staple for breakfast/brunch. Best,
Food was good our waitress was fabulous, my only complaint is the tables are kinda close to one another.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We appreciate you taking the time to do so. We hope you can dine with us again soon. Cheers!
We had a very pleasant experience. Had the cheese curds which were delightful. I had a chicken sandwich, and she had a steak salad. The food was done perfectly The wait staff was helpful and we enjoyed ourselves very much. Would come back again.
Hi Chris - Thank you for visiting! We're so happy you enjoyed your experience. We appreciate the compliments. Safe travels and happy dining,
Excellent food and service. Atmosphere was very quiet and calming. Waite staff was exceptional.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us and your recommendation! We loved reading your review. We hope you can visit our pretty little town again soon. Well wishes,
The food was amazing. Highly recommend the pretzel appetizer, and the Mojo Pork Tenderloin.
Thank you for your recommendation! Excellent choices, the pretzel is a diner favorite. Recommend trying the watermelon salad, it's very refreshing and delicious. Safe travels,
This was a lunch with my visiting brother and we both love Red Wing because of our grandparents living there. This restaurant is outstanding - the view on the deck, the flowers, the food, the service! Amanda was our server and she was fantastic.
Good morning - Red Wing sounds like a very special place for your family :) Thank you for dining with us! We appreciate your support and compliments. Come again soon! Best,
two of us ordered the wild mushroom risotto. Both dishes were completely bland. We asked for salt to try and wake up the flavors but it did not work. The other two dinners were good but it was very disappointing to have something come out of the kitchen that had no flavor.
We appreciate your feedback, Dennis. Your comments were shared with our culinary team to learn and grow. Thank you for dining with us. Warm regards,
Amazing food and service!! Will definitely be going back! Good value and quality for price. The French fries were amazing.
Thank you so much, Nathan! We can't wait for you to visit us again. Happy dining,
As we were staying at the St James the hostess did not go out of their way in our seating request! Our waitress was very kind but service in general was not very good!
Our choice for wine was cut short by saying that our requested wine was in short supply in the restaurant but may be available at the bar, couldn’t understand that and no effort was taken to check our request!
Good morning - thank you for dining with us. We're disappointed to hear that you were not happy with your experience. Your comments were shared with the team to ensure better future experiences. Your feedback will help the team learn and grow. Some wines at our restaurant are also available in the The Port lounge/bar, located at the St. James Hotel. We appreciate the compliment on a server. We encourage you to give us another chance. Sincerely,
Had asked for reservation outside. None available when we arrived. We were on time. Long wait before waiter came to take order 10-15 min.
Food arrived 35 min later after we tracked down waiter. Food was Lukewarm and unappetizing. French fries were dry and wrinkled.
Would not recommend to others.
Hi Judy - thank you for dining with us. We apologize for your experience. Your comments provide us with valuable information to improve our service. We hope you can give us another try in the future. Sincerely,
Service was outstanding. Special requests were made in the reservation including a request for outdoor seating and that we were celebrating a birthday. When we got to the restaurant, we were told there was no outdoor seating available for 5 people even though we had a reservation. No mention of the birthday until we brought it up.
Food is amazing! I have been there 3 times and everything I have tried has been very good! Recommend trying the desserts!
Thanks for sharing your experience, Susan! Thank you for the compliments on the service and the food. Your comments were shared with our team to learn and grow to provide better diner experiences. The desserts are a must-try! Hope you can visit again soon. Cheers!
What a delightful surprise this was. It was a last minute decision as we were driving back home from Florida to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food was top notch and the prices were less than we expected. Service was phenomenal and we even got a free desert for our anniversary. Will definitely make the short trip back here again.
Thank you for your kind review! We're so happy you enjoyed your experience at our restaurant. Your feedback is much appreciated. Happy belated anniversary. Safe travels,
Awesome food and the service was excellent. We sat outside - beautiful.
Thank you so much for your kind feedback, Mary! The patio is a beautiful space. Cheers,

Best salmon ever! The steak & fries delicious too. Lovely place!
Thank you for dining with us! Come again,
Great staff. They were welcoming and went above expectations to make our experience fantastic!
Good morning - thank you for your kind words! We appreciate your recommendation. Cheers,
Beautiful new venue! Attentive service.
We were disappointed in the walleye sandwich. Small and not fond of the breading.
Sweet potato fries..excellent.
Thank you for your feedback, Elizabeth! Your comments will help our culinary team. We recommend trying the market fish for dinner next time you're in town. All the best,
Scarlet Kitchen is a great place to have lunch with friends or dinner with your special someone. The servers are helpful and friendly. The food is delicious especially the fancy pretzel on the menu. I wish I lived close by, I’d be there all the time.
Thank you for your kind feedback, Valerie! The pretzel is so good; our Pastry Chef makes them! We can't wait to welcome you back. Safe travels and well wishes,
The patio at Scarlet Kitchen is awesome. They have done a great job in design and decor. The service and food is very good.
Thank you so much! We love our redesigned spaces. Hope you can visit us again soon,
So VERY good! BLTA, Mac & cheese, steak salad were all exceptional - and the French fries are not to be missed!
Good morning Jennifer - we appreciate your kind feedback! Excellent choices. I recommend trying the watermelon salad during your next visit. Happy dining,
Beautiful patio, great drinks, awesome server. I would have given 5 stars but there were just a few of the food items that were not good. Group of 4, we started with cheese curds and crab cakes for appetizers. They were both awesome! Highly recommend. Dinners: don't order the mushroom risotto. It was very bland, even with a ton of salt/pepper added, we could not get it to taste better. It had an unappealing brown color and had cilantro micro-greens that were not mentioned on the menu but if you don't like cilantro, you know that is a bad thing to leave out of the ingredient list. However, we did have some fabulous other food. The Swedish meatballs were outstanding! The mojo pork tenderloin was also very good, high ratings from our friend on the house chimichurri sauce. The passion fruit cheesecake was fabulous. This was our 2nd time there and have only ever been disappointed by that risotto. We will go back, it's a lovely place with great atmosphere.
Hi there! Thank you for your detailed feedback. Your comments with help our culinary team ensure better future diner experiences. We appreciate the compliments on the service and the restaurant.

The food was amazing and the service was excellent!!
Thank you for your review. Cheers!
Outdoor dining was amazing….the decor made us feel like we were on vacation in Mexico, and not in MN!!
Wow! What a wonderful comparison. Thank you for your review! We love our patio. Cheers!
Beautiful meal and atmosphere. The patio was perfect!
Thank you so much for your feedback! We appreciate your support.
There were six of us. Plenty of menu choices for everyone. All enjoyed their food. The specialty cocktails were inventive and delicious.
Thank you for sharing! So happy that everyone in your group enjoyed the experience at Scarlet. Come again soon,
This is a very nice place, quaint and stylish…. we went there on a Saturday at 8:10pm, after the rush. The service was a bot slow, but somewhat expected. It took around an hour to get all of our food, but the apps and drinks came out fast enough, just a major gap to the entree’s.
We got the spinach artichoke dip app. It came out very hot and soupy, however after letting it cool down and thicken, it was great. They say it comes with naan bread, but it was more like triangle fried bread… not a traditional naan as you might expect. Nevertheless, it was good, just wish they put more naan on the dish.
We got the steak and fries🍟 , and the mushroom risotto. Unfortunately, by the time the food was delivered, the steak 🥩 was cold and chewy and the risotto was inedible. It was wayyyy too salty and the mushroom 🍄 slices were chewy afterthoughts thrown on top. The fries 🍟 however were awesome. Crisp and hot to perfection. Definitely the star of the entrees.
For dessert they made an off-menu chocolate martini 🍸 and it was great!
Don’t think I would order the same items again, probably just get the burger 🍔 and fries 🍟!
That’s all, happy eating.

Great meal and terrific service from Katie (who is also a martini expert)!
Cheers to good company, food, and drinks! Thank you for your support, Gary!
The ambience is amazing on the outdoor eating area! Beautifully decorated and comfortable. Service was stellar! The steak on my steak salad was a little tough to eat, but big portions and beautifully presented.
Thank you, Catherine! We appreciate the compliments and your feedback. We hope you can visit our little slice of paradise again soon. Warm regards,
The servers were so professional and kind. The food was amazingly good. So many complimentary flavors packed into one entree and a satisfying portion. My husband said the same about his entree. Will be back soon!
Thank you so much! We loved reading your review. Thank you for the kind compliments and your support. See you again!
